    Medium Shield Boss- 14 Gauge Steel Every member of Draugar Vinlands uses one of these bosses on their shield. None of them have ever failed. They are well made and they are thick enough to offer very good protection against weapons piercing the shield and hitting your shield hand. The design is simple and there are many examples of this style, and size of shield boss being found in archaeological digs. When the boss comes to your door it will be oiled very shiny and packed in bubble wrap. I usually flame blacken my boss by leaving it in a fire for about ten minutes and then pulling it out with tongs and fast quenching it in a bucket of water. When you pull it out of the water using the same tongs it will be an iron grey blue color. You can also use “Gun Bluing” solution to get the same effect but I prefer to stay away from the hassle of using chemicals. This Product gets the Jarl seal of Approval and the approval of the rest of the Vikings in my group. Hail to Kult of Athena for yet another great product!

    Medium Shield Boss- 14 Gauge Steel A very nice shield boss, i haven’t made a shield yet, but i have bought this shield boss and it’s really nice. 5 stars from me.

    size ? Is the diameter from edge to edge or just the cup size (ugh, sorry. don’t know how else to say it. the diameter of just the cup, not the flange?)

    Good boss! Bought this to put on my Nordic shield, was quite surprised that it came with rivets in a little bag, however they were too short to be of any use to me. I used 1/8″x2″ brass rivets to fasten it to my shield, the rivets used were a little small but they seem to hold the boss on tightly with no movement.

    Will look at purchasing this product again in the future.
